Bought a flipped home from an Amateur

3 Replies

I recently bought a home in woodland park Nj that was a flip. It seems every day I am finding new problems with the guys work ,cover ups and just bad work. Unfortunately I was late researching the seller. Found him on this sight and  now know of existing problems he covered up and lied about . 

@Brian Eppler , I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience.  Unfortunately there are some investors who lack integrity.  I would approach the seller and explain the issues.  Most of the time rehabbers will fix shoddy work if made aware of it.  

@Brian Eppler are you saying the flipper posts on this site and his posts showed or allowed you to see issues he covered up, or did improperly? If so I would do my best to save/document them and speak with an attorney. If you can prove the flipper covered up issues they need to make them right. See if you can hold them accountable.
